Saint Clare's Hospital Celebrates Certified Nurses Day

DENVILLE, NJ – March 20, 2015 – Saint Clare’s Hospital celebrated Certified Nurses Day on March 19th by honoring its 155 board-certified nurses at its 2nd Annual Nursing Research Day. During a special tea, nurses were recognized for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care.

“We are extremely proud as we celebrate the 155 board-certified nurses at Saint Clare’s Health System, and encourage and support all our nurses to pursue national board certification,” said Deb Regen, chief nursing officer. “By achieving certification, it demonstrates the commitment our nurses have to our community in ensuring a safe, healing environment for our patients.”

Certification benefits patients and their families, validating that the nurse caring for them has demonstrated experience, knowledge and skills in the complex specialties of acute and critical care.

Certified Nurses Day is an annual worldwide event dedicated to celebrating certification as a means to ensure high standards of patient care and to promote continuing excellence in the nursing profession. Initially proposed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the day honors the birthday of the late Margretta “Gretta” Madden Styles, an international pioneer of nursing certification who designed the first comprehensive study of nurse credentialing.

Saint Clare’s Hospital celebrated Certified Nurses Day on March 19th by honoring its 155 board-certified nurses at its 2nd Annual Nursing Research Day. During a special tea, nurses were recognized for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care.
